Macquarie University Hospital (MUH) in Sydney’s north, becomes the first private hospital in NSW to agree to shift-by-shift ratios for nurses!
NSW public hospitals are facing increased admissions of patients, without the increase in staff to meet the demand. There simply aren’t enough nurses and midwives and it’s putting patients’ lives at risk. A more transparent nurse-to-patient Ratios system is urgently needed to help deliver safe care to all patients across NSW.
Safe ratios are a priority for everyone. It’s time the government did the right thing and put the people of NSW and their care first.
